Funny how long/delayed vote counts that "flip" earlier returns overwhelmingly favor democrats, isn't it? I guess that's just meant to bolster faith in election integrity.
Looks like they are calling Arizona for Hobbs, and that a recount is likely.

Tinfoil on, as I mentioned earlier, this is one of those races that are fishy to me. Just like Trump/Biden, we have one candidate with packed rallies, doing interviews and answering questions left and right, and just animated and out there with a ridiculously enthusiastic base. The other candidate refused debates, refuses to answer question (going as far as practically tipping a restaurant table over to run and hide in a bathroom), refused all but the softest softball interviews (and being inarticulate when interviewed), and had an unenthusiastic base, in an ostensibly red state, and she's the winner.

Is there really a big "silent majority" of democrats in Arizona, or are post election night votes "being found"?

It’s fraud straight up and simple.

And it’s fraud done in a “*expletive deleted*ck you we’re going to be as obvious as possible with it, knowing you won’t be able to do anything while we cover up windows and doors and have partisan ballot counters wearing Democrat apparel make up enough votes to flip the majority just enough in our favor in these swing states”

*expletive deleted*ck this country I hope it all collapses.

If the Rs win GA we're right back where we are now.
If the Ds win GA you can count on a "assault" weapons ban, abortion bill, "Green" aka wealth distribution bills out the wazoo, maybe even reparations and SC packing.

Edit: IF the D's hold on to the House of course

Fox has the GOP with 217 in the house vs 205 Ds. Of the 13 "undecided" races the GOP only needs to win 1 to get a House majority. They're leading in several races, but there still seem to be a LOT of untallied votes a full WEEK after the election.

Nothing suspicious there at all.

A House majority means that the worst legislation can be stopped, assuming turncoat RINOs don't vote D. (My faith in the GOP mirrors my faith in election integrity.) If the D's gain another vote in the Senate, bad things can happen with regard to judicial appointments and the filibuster.

Whoops, forgot to put IF the D's hold on to the House in my post. Right now I'm almost afraid to hold out hope the R's take control considering history seems to repeating itself in that virtually every uncounted ballot seems to be straight D for some strange reason.  :O

Was Lake ever ahead? From what I recall seeing she was trailing since election day and her only hope was to keep counting and "finding" more ballots...

Maricopa County tends to make its ballot drops in the evenings. Keep your eye out tonight for one that could push Lake into the lead
Saturday night’s drop will likely have a heavy Republican slant based on the areas the ballots are expected to come from
...
In Arizona— don’t show up outside County buildings, don’t tweet or say stupid things. Don’t give them an excuse to stop counting votes.

I thought I saw her ahead the day after election day, but I wasn't following extra close.  Crowder did an interview with her the day after so they might have mentioned if that was the case.

Supposedly live feed of Maricopa ballot counting center showed a cart with bags of ballots arriving “randomly” a few minutes ago.

If true, I’m sure they are all Dem marked ballots. The fix is in.

Well, Alaska has finally weighed in two weeks after Election Day. That ranked choice system is working just peachy for them. It appears that if they voted like normal people, they would have an R representative, and RINO Murkowski would be out. Instead:

 :facepalm:
One county is apparently withholding its certification of its own results, objecting to the election results.

The Republican majority on the Cochise County Board of Supervisors pushed back certification until Friday, citing concerns about voting machines. Because Monday was the deadline for all 15 Arizona counties to certify their results, Cochise’s action could put at risk the votes of some 47,000 county residents and could inject chaos into the election if those votes go uncounted.

According to Cochise County’s own publicly posted final results, Lake won the county with 27,481 votes, to Hobbs’s 19,137 votes.

It is conceivable, although unlikely, that the county simply would not submit any certified results for the elections which would have the opposite effect that the Republican board members desire:

An initial deadline of December 5 had been set for statewide certification. In the lawsuit, Hobbs’ lawyers said state law does allow for a slight delay if her office has not received a county’s results, but not past December 8 – or 30 days after the election.

“Absent this Court’s intervention, the Secretary will have no choice but to complete statewide canvass by December 8 without Cochise County’s votes included,” her lawyers added.

If votes from this Republican stronghold somehow went uncounted, it could flip two races to Democrats: the contest for state superintendent and a congressional race
in which Republican Juan Ciscomani already has been projected as the winner by CNN and other outlets.

You hear a lot of nonsensical claims and accusations about disenfranchisement, but in this case, these two county board of supervisors members would effectively disenfranchise every voter in their county.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

Well after all votes were certified here in Michigan, two school different districts revealed that there were irregularities with the signatures validating the candidates ability to be on the ballot...actually they did not qualify, but had won the elections.  To fix that there has to be an appeal to a court to have a hearing about what to do.

According to an email from the Illinois Policy Institute (a "think tank" that tracks legislation & politicians here), the "Amendment 1" passed and is now on the state's Constitution.  They estimate that the average - the average - property tax bill will increase by $2200 in just 4 years.
So many union people voted for this piece of garbage believing it would help them.  They are in for a shock as it only helps government unions.  These unions will now be able to circumvent many state regulations and will be negotiating not only for wages and benefits, but now they can bring in things like housing, education, etc., basically, anything that they desire.

God help us because it is an absolute certainty that nobody else in this state will ever again.
